VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 3, 2008
Sample at the 2008 VT Brewers Fest - Poured a slightly cloudy pale yellow in color with a small white head that quickly faded, Aroma is of bready yeast, bananas and some citrus. Flavor was also yeasty with the sour citrus and other fruits. Finishes with a mild sourness. Nice...

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2011
Dégustée en fût au Vices & Versa à Montréal. De couleur orange-dorée et voilée. Nez de grains de céréales sucrées, moyen de pain de seigle, léger de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et léger de levures fruitées (agrumes, léger d’abricots avec des traces de bananes) aux petites notes épicées. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement crémeuse. Moyen goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, traces d’abricots et de bananes) aux notes épicées (clou de girofle, traces de poivre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de céréales sucrées avec un moyen goût de pain de seigle (notes asséchantes) ainsi que des traces de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère-moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées) aux faibles notes florales. Post-goût moyen et moyennement sec, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux avec des notes fruitées (zest d’agrumes) et des traces de blé. (printemps 2007)

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a yellowish straw with a resilient white head. Tastes like malt, wheat, pepper, coriander and cereals. Citrusy, bitter lemon finish. Medium bodied. Good, but not exceptional.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from City Beer. Pours murky golden with a decent white head and a sharp fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour fruit and light malt flavor, with a dry finish. Not much of a yeast presence and a bit light on flavor, but easy to drink.

thegreenrooster (3154) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pour is a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet honey and barnyard. Flavor is a decent fresh fruit with some white wine and vinegar. Finish is bone dry and a little tart. No real mustiness or pepper which I like in a saison are found. This was tart and sweet. Found in a bargan bin for 7 bucks.

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2013
The Sampler, Brooklyn ($15): Pours orange with a sea foam head. Aroma is tropical fruit and a bit of funk, but it ain’t as saisonesque as many other saisons. Taste is mildly bitter, with a hoppiness that carries over to the aftertaste. A little on the dry side. Somewhat sweet around the middle. Nothing all too impressive.
